If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Speaking of reestablishing norms, in response to the mostly peaceful but terrifying events that led lawmakers to courageously cower in their chambers or bravely flee, metal detectors have suddenly appeared at the entrances to the House floor.

https://nypost.com/2021/01/13/rep-boebert-clashes-with-capitol-police-over-metal-detector/

This wouldn't have affected the protesters in the slightest, so it must be a response to the danger presented by members of Congress. They're telling us we clearly can't trust them.
Are they worried Lauren's going to whip out her piece and gank a few Dems?

So much projection.

Trump doesn’t give a crap about getting impeached.  Look at his video from today (yesterday?).  He’s more worried about his Twitter ban.
Exactly. Trump doesn't care about being president now or in the future (but he want to keep fools believing the the possibility of the latter). What he wants is easy access to the fools that will keep channeling their money to him for at least the next four years. Along the way, he wants to use that access to extort Republicans ("nice elected position you have there, be a shame if something happened to it").
I think the whole post election fight proves Trump really cares about being president. He seems really sure he legitimately won, fought it using all the legal means available, and ended up sabotaging the Georgia races, which damaged his potential as future kingmaker.

I'm glad they went after Trump. Eventually, the Democrates are going to lose, and whoever is in power at the time should prosecute people like Maxine Waters for doing what Trump did. No should be above the law.

It's about compliance.  You will comply.  Those words are banned unless I say them.  If you question me you are a white supremacist and I'll charge you as a domestic terrorist.  You will comply.

consolcwby posted about the Rachel Rodriguez arrest in San Antonio. (ref)

Trump is already letting us know,  “Trump To Supporters: ‘NO Violence, NO Lawbreaking’ At Inauguration Protests”
TRUMP: “In light of reports of more demonstrations, I urge that there must be NO violence, NO lawbreaking and NO vandalism of any kind. That is not what I stand for, and it is not what America stands for. I call on ALL Americans to help ease tensions and calm tempers. Thank You.”
So NOW Trump can present evidence of election theft, foreign interference, and attempted coups by any means. The Democrats, the press, and Big Tech thought they were masters of the universe!
The election theft was done  online.
That means the US military got the evidence.

I might disagree about facts, but I approve of how consolcwby advocates proceeding in this case. It seems to me that many Trump supporters are giving up on providing evidence of fraud -- when I think that is the most crucial issue. For one, I'd like to see a collected document that assembles the statistical evidence of voter fraud that has double-checked data, and shows its sources and methods. I would think that should have been done early on, and the document updated as more evidence was collected.

Crimes can continue to be prosecuted, and investigations continued. Trump-supporting lawmakers can propose election-reform bills - both on a state level and a federal level.

The Rodriguez case looks like it has merit. People who commit fraud should be investigated and prosecuted.

His effort was all smoke, no fire. It wasn't truly an attempt to win--even he isn't stupid enough to think that would happen. But his dumbest supporters...gotta keep them hooked so the money keeps coming in.

The social media crackdowns have let a certain subset of Conservatives know that the current media industrial complex is gunning for them.
Fixed that for you.

When has Ron Paul participated in this certain subset?

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/ron-paul-facebook-censorship-reaction-your-world-liberty-report

And it's not just conservatives, though part of the battle plan is to accuse them of being conservative.

The notion of an exclusionary and hostile RPG community is a fever dream of zealots who view all social dynamics through a narrow keyhole of structural oppression.

Yes. The Ron Paul ban is bullshit.

In the long run any of that broad deplatforming will survive scrutiny in the courts.

All news nowadays is fake news, so I have no idea what is actually the truth anymore since both sides are spin doctoring or outright fabricating everything to the point of absurdity.

Peaceful rally? Violent riot? False flag operation? The answer is whatever is politically expedient from moment to moment.

America done fucked up. Fuck the politicians. Fuck big tech. They're all scum-sucking vampires.

This country desperately needs another revolution to free us from the tyranny of the plutarchy. Viva la America!

I replied on the other thread, since it seems more on-topic there.

As a side note, also this:

Rules for you, not rules for me pleeb.
"There can be no middle ground with bigots. Bigots want to deny the rights and livelihood of people different from them. They want them to cease existing, either by going underground or by murdering them. There is no "let's meet in the middle" with that. To suggest there can be is ignorance" RPGNet

Does your mind reading power do anything else?  I need the Lotto numbers for Saturday.

Come on, if Trump were serious, would he have used the guest star from the Borat sequel to lead his legal efforts?

Borat is all you got?  I also support Americas war of terror.
